Dusting Off The Cobwebs

Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset

 

It’s been quiet around here. All my writing has been hoarded in a collection of tattered notebooks and journals as I feared anything I wrote wasn’t worth sharing with the world. Who knows, maybe it isn’t, but I’ve decided that I don’t really care. I miss the feeling I had weaving words together for someone other than myself and I’m back to share what’s been brewing in my cluttered brain for the past few months.

I’m currently in the process of wiping away the cobwebs and doing a bit of re-branding. Not only here on my blog but in my personal life as well. I fully believe that we have the power to create the life we want to live and, as these past couple months of inaction have proven, it takes constant creating to maintain. I was ready to throw in the towel, convinced I wasn’t cut out for this whole writing thing. But I suppose that’s how life goes, you get knocked down, declare yourself out of the ring for good only to find out that the hard work, sweat and of course a few tears you put in was way more worth it compared to a life of mediocrity (that seemingly slips by at the speed of light).

Maybe it’s just that sometimes we need space from what’s good for us to actually realize it’s meant to be in our lives. So here I sit, back at the drawing board. Creating, revising, thinking and re-thinking, planning and plotting. Ready to attack my goals with full force. Ready to conquer the cycles that so often leave me with half written blog posts and not reaching my self-created deadlines. It’s a good feeling and I’m excited to share the journey with you all.

  1. This is really a wake up call Marianna,
    BTW: Its my first time on your blog and you’re really doing a wonderful job here. I love how simple your blog is.

    I visited through the comment you left on leaving work behind. Coming to this post, i really agree with that Jack Canfield’s quote “Everything we want is at the other side of fear” So true indeed.

    I can really relate to this. You write an article, you want to hit the publish button and suddenly stopped thinking what people will say about it, and after everything, you finally left it on your draft. This will certainly not do anyone any good.

    Sometimes its better to ask yourself some questions like….. Whats the worst case scenario? I think the answer will be that people will not read it right? Or they will criticize you for writing a poor article but if you think about it, you will only get better by being criticized so, why not get that word out there?

    Indeed, we all need to clean up the cobwebs and I’m also going to do just that.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Theodore :) Yes, so true! That is exactly what has been happening. However, I’m trying to keep in mind not everything needs to be a perfect masterpiece. Thanks for stopping by and leaving some kind words.

  2. I Love this post! “But I suppose that’s how life goes, you get knocked down, declare yourself out of the ring for good only to find out that the hard work, sweat and of course a few tears you put in was way more worth it compared to a life of mediocrity (that seemingly slips by at the speed of light).” Beautiful!! :) The past month, I felt the same way- overwhelmed, down and out and after some consistent hard work & prayer things are starting to look up! After the blood, sweat and tears, comes the success! Sometimes, you just need some quiet to just allow your mind to flow and that’s when you come back refreshed, ready to go again :)

    Would love it if you checked out my new eBook on Amazon, free for Kindle Unlimited Readers- it’s a guide to running a profitable Virtual Assistant Business from Start to Finish. I give all of my amazing tips from my own Virtual Assistant Business. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01C7P9MX6?ref_=pe_2427780_160035660

    • Hi Melinda :)

      So glad you like it. Very true, sometimes we need to tune out the busy so we can come out clear and refreshed.

      Thanks for passing your book along, I’ll take a peek!
